TikTok is basically Tinder for the gays.
After a lot of uncertainty surrounding the future of the app, it seems that the United States government will not ban TikTok—for now.
This information may mean very little to you if you were born before 2000, but for the millions of zoomers who have found a place for their wide array of interests and identities on TikTok, this is pretty huge news. Everyone knows about the power of TikTok teens to interrupt political proceedings and influence culture (Charlie D'Amelio has a Dunkin' Donuts drink named after her...), but did you know that there are thriving communities of LGBTQ+ people who use TikTok as a safe place to express themselves?
If you're a WLW, it's time you swallow your pride and download TikTok. Otherwise you just might miss out on developments in your own community. Here are our 15 favorite lesbian and queer TickTokers to celebrate TikTok remaining in the app store–for at least a little longer.
Kylie and Hannah are one of the cutest couples on TikTok. Not only do they post adorable and funny videos of their loving relationship, but they also use their platform to call out common misconceptions about WLW relationships. The above TikTok, which shows Kylie surprising Hannah in the outfit she wore on their first date, is just one of the many adorable moments the couple shares with their followers.
Gabriella Ovalles is a Michigan State University student with a huge following on TikTok. She looks shockingly like Timothee Chalamet, has an equally gorgeous twin sister, and posts a lot of entertaining videos of her daily life.
Long-time couple Hailee and Kendra first rose to Tik ok fame when they began posting Kendra's hilarious reactions to Hailee's cringey pick up lines. Since then, they've gathered 2.9 million followers and counting.
Avery Cyrus is among the most popular TikTokers on the platform with 3.7 million followers. The subject of her videos vary, but they often feature her adorable girlfriend, Sophie, and address LGBTQ+ culture. We also love her series "Avery Tries" that shows the young influencer trying new things for the first time.

If you're a queer femme, you almost certainly listen to King Princess. If you've ever been to one of her concerts, you know she has a huge personality and a great sense of humor, all of which shine through on her TikTok account. Plus, you get to see her interact with her girlfriend, Quinn, like in the TikTok above.
Another adorable WLW on the list, Alissa and Sam make cute couple's content, but also meet all your gay thirst trap needs (as seen above).

Olivia is dating fellow TikToker Ava Sage, and the two teenagers make an incredibly cute couple. There's something cathartic about watching 17-year-olds be unapologetically gay, especially if you're older and that wasn't really an option in your teenage years. And yes, the eyebrow slit is a gay thing now, apparently.
Ash Morgan is an interesting content creator for a lot of reasons, including that she married a man when she was very young, only to later figure out that she was a lesbian and subsequently divorce him and leave the Mormon faith. Now, she creates videos about being a femme lesbian, things she didn't realize until she came out, and details about how compulsory heterosexuality effects women.
Cheyanne Taylor is one of the most positive people on social media. Cheyanne was previously dating Michelle Lundy, and together the pair were one of social media's most famous WLW couples. But now, after their dramatic breakup, Cheyanne's posts are even better.

Vas Halastaras first got famous on Instagram for her resemblance to the David by Michelangelo, and for her generally striking androgynous beauty. We love the vulnerable, funny, and informative content she's been posting.

Another example of the Gen-Z gay girl eyebrow slit trend, Hannah posts a lot of lip sync videos made specifically for WLW.
First of all, Marth is just ridiculously hot. A self-proclaimed masc bisexual, a lot of Marth's content deals with WLW culture and fashions. The rest of it is laugh out loud funny or completely drool-worthy.
While we prefer her ex-girlfriend, there is no denying that Michelle Lundy is one of the hottest lesbians on TikTok. She mostly posts cringey thirst traps or desperate ploys for Cheyanne's attention, but it all manages to be entertaining (even if it kind of sad).
When u friend zone each other back & forth for 6 months >>>♬ Lemonade Internet Money - joy:)
Soph, who is dating Avery Cyrus, has one million TikTok followers of her own, making them a bit of a TikTok power couple. Soph posts less long form videos than Avery, but her infectious smile and positivity makes all of her videos completely endearing.
With an impressive 2.4 million followers, Hannah Raisor is among the most popular WLW TikTokers. It all started with the above TikTok, which has a cool 3.1 million likes and counting. She also tends to post uplifting and encouraging content for her millions of followers.

Whether liberal or conservative, Chris Pratt's politics are apparently the most important thing in the world...
This is an incredibly consequential time in American history.
With less than two weeks left until the 2020 presidential election, the future of the nation hangs in the balance, and it all hinges on one essential question: Which side is Chris Pratt on?
Lack of star power and corporate backing is causing the show to lose steam.
With the entire world stuck at home sheltering in place, musicians have had to resort to entertaining fans (and themselves) virtually.While some entertained the weary masses in the form of TikTok videos and Instagram challenges, others went as far as performing concerts and DJ sets from the comfort of their homes. But it would be the platform created by super producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland that would become the frontrunner in quarantine entertainment.
On March 24, Verzuz was born as a showdown between accomplished artists, songwriters, and producers playing their most popular songs against each other in the spirit of friendly competition. Instagram Live would act as the battleground for the clash of musical titans. Swizz and Timbaland would not only serve as the masterminds of the series but its inaugural battle participants.
